On Senior Citizen's Day, 25 percent of the fans who attended a baseball game were senior citizens. What was the ratio of senior citizens to younger fans?

1:3

Explanation

Since 25% were senior citizens, 75% were younger. The ratio of senior citizens to younger fans was 25%:75%. To reduce the ratio, divide both numbers by 25%.
25% ÷ 25% = 1 and 75% ÷ 25% = 3.
So the ratio is 1:3.
